Highland Capital Management expands ETF platform


Highland Capital Management Fund Advisors has expanded its suite of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) with the initial registration of 17 new funds. 

These new products will invest across various alternative asset classes and will focus on providing efficient access to sophisticated strategies at an attractive price.

“We’re pleased to be announcing the registration of these new funds and to expand our ETF offerings,” says Ethan Powell, Highland’s Chief Product Strategist. “This important step in launching our new suite of ETFs shows Highland's dedication and commitment to the ETF space and our consistent drive to provide compelling and differentiated strategies to the investing public.”

Highland's existing ETF platform consists of the Highland/iBoxx Senior Loan ETF (SNLN). Highland/iBoxx Senior Loan ETF aims to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Leveraged Loan Index.

In 2014, Highland made several key hires in the retail channel, further built out its product offering in the space and received award recognition for the performance of several actively managed strategies.

“ETFs provide a unique vehicle intended to allow for quick and efficient exposure to global capital markets. This filing represents another exciting evolution of Highland’s approach to offer differentiated strategies at a competitive price,” says Dr Bob Froehlich, independent board member of Highland Funds and former Vice Chairman of Deutsche Asset Management. “We truly believe the ETF industry is poised for strong, long-term growth and we’re excited to see where the expanded product lineup will take us.”
